    Binghamton, NY Supercharger

    Actually it's been operational for about three years now.

    You should get in touch with @artsci. He may be selling them.

    TeslaLog.com - Your hosted Tesla Data Logger - Announcement / Support threads

    Would it help if you did something to allow people to donate to the cause? I'm not suggesting "charging" for the service, but perhaps just asking for voluntary contributions. What do you think?

    Firmware 8.1 - Autopilot HW1

    I was close. It's 463: Stop the Press! Tesla announces REAL HP numbers for P85D and P90L

    Firmware 8.1 - Autopilot HW1

    I'm glad you are happy, but you did not get what you paid for.

    Firmware 8.1 - Autopilot HW1

    That's after the Ludicrous upgrade, right? @HankLloydRight was asking about the original P85D.

    Firmware 8.1 - Autopilot HW1

    I haven't thought about this in a while, and I'm sure it's possible to look it up somewhere, but off the top of my head, the number that I recall, which may not be correct, is 465.
  8. Andyw2100

    Firmware 8.1 - Autopilot HW1

    And then to 2.9 with Ludicrous, but only if you have max battery heater on and ready and also use launch mode.

    Firmware 8.1 - Autopilot HW1

    Fair enough. Perhaps I would be more willing to accept some of the broken promises were it not for the 691 HP fiasco. For me, that changed everything.

    Firmware 8.1 - Autopilot HW1

    How well does your car come to pick you up on private property? How about fulfilling the promises made at the D event, which are the promises many of us purchased based upon. I would argue that Tesla most certainly does have a legal obligation to update the firmware on my car until such time...

    Spare Switched 12V Circuit on Model S built after July 2014

    Sorry. This was a year and a half ago, so my recollection is fuzzy. I did get the front camera working on my own. I believe I got the thing apart, and then matched up the wires, and put it back together. There is no question in my mind that others here will be able to help you far better than...

    Vendor Dashboard for Tesla - the better app for your Tesla

    I'm aware of the multiple smart charging locations sharing the same actual location possibility. It's just simpler for me to edit the time, than to create 20 or 30 smart charging locations and then have to pick one. Changing the time is pretty quick and simple. Exactly. That is all it would...

    Vendor Dashboard for Tesla - the better app for your Tesla

    I have a suggestion for an addition to the smart charging options. My wife (and I assume others as well) leave for work at a different time every day. So each day I modify the smart charging completion time, based on what time she tells me she is leaving in the morning. My suggestion would be...

    Pack Performance and Launch Mode Limits

    There's not a P85DL on the planet that achieves or ever achieved the "advertised at purchase time" horsepower.
  15. Andyw2100

    Pack Performance and Launch Mode Limits

    Actually it is not. The classic bait and switch involves "baiting" a customer to come in for an advertised item at a low price, and then when the customer arrives "switching" that customer to a higher priced item, saying the advertised item is not available. I obviously do not condone Tesla's...

    Pack Performance and Launch Mode Limits

    That could be a great marketing tactic: Tesla: "Our performance models expire eight years from the date they are purchased. Can you say that about your milk?" On the other hand, maybe not...

    Pack Performance and Launch Mode Limits

    When it was announced the offer was for "six months." Tesla never clarified if that was six months from the announcement date, from when it actually became available, or from some other date. There was much discussion on here about putting down the deposit before various dates, as it was not...
  18. Andyw2100

    Pack Performance and Launch Mode Limits

    Just a minor point, but unless I am mistaken there was a date by which P85D owners had to purchase the upgrade, it was a long time ago, and I have not heard or read that Tesla extended the offer beyond that date.
  19. Andyw2100

    Pack Performance and Launch Mode Limits

    If you consider this fair, that's fine--for you. I was suggesting that some people would need more than simply a refund on the feature in question for things to be made right.
  20. Andyw2100

    Pack Performance and Launch Mode Limits

    It always gets my hackles up when people talk about getting a $10K refund on Ludicrous and suggest that that would make everything right. Tesla valued the Ludicrous feature upgrade at $10K, but that doesn't mean the car is worth $10K less to whomever purchased it if it doesn't have Ludicrous...

    Blackvue 650GW Dual Power Draw

    I am almost certain that from Day One, the Tesla 12V pack was recharged as needed, by the traction pack, in all models.
  23. Andyw2100

    Blackvue 650GW Dual Power Draw

    I know you were trying to help, but I'm pretty sure you did say "kind of dumb things." :) I am almost certain that there is no problem whatsoever leaving on a two week trip, even if you have hard-wired the Blackvue, because the 12V battery will be recharged, as needed, from the traction pack.

    Blackvue 650GW Dual Power Draw

    If you use a switched power source the cameras won't record when the car is off. I think the cameras recording in parking mode is one of the real benefits of the system. I'd recommend using a different source for power, so that you can take advantage of parking mode recording. Good luck!

    Major MyTesla issue...

    I didn't realize that, based on his opening post. Perhaps I should have.

    Major MyTesla issue...

    I would add to "Reboot your device" with "reboot your car." That often solves this problem.

    problems with EZPass

    I didn't just "answer his question" because there is no simple answer. At various times during various build periods people reported no issues with EZ Pass placed in certain locations. I wasn't trying to be difficult. I just didn't want to try to summarize several threads and dozens of posts in...

    Light Harmonic Amp & Customer Service discussion

    If enough people start the credit card chargeback process Light Harmonic's card processor may raise their cc processing rates, or, if the situation becomes bad enough, prevent them from accepting credit cards entirely. The banks and card processors do not like this kind of behavior from the...

    Pack Performance and Launch Mode Limits

    So P90DLs will no longer be able to meet the spec that some versions were, briefly able to meet--the 10.9 second quarter mile. I imagine Tesla is doing this to keep down the cost of warranty repairs and replacements. The fact that nothing particularly negative for them came of the 691 HP fiasco...

    Multiple HomeLink via Tesla App

    Sorry. I was unaware, as I do not have Summon enabled on my car. My bad.

    Multiple HomeLink via Tesla App

    I'm not sure what you are talking about. As far as I know, the Tesla app does not offer any access to Homelink settings.

    HPWC between garage doors?

    You are correct that the cable should not be run over. You will find some posts here by people who say they do it all the time, and more posts by people telling them they should not.

    Snow Rims

    Just wondering...did you really mean Turbines, or did you actually mean Cyclones? Turbines are 21", Cyclones are 19".

    Pack Performance and Launch Mode Limits

    Exactly! And it pains me a bit to say this, but I think this was basically what Tesla was counting on when they decided to limit based on counters. Their mistake was under-estimating this community, and our influence.

    Vendor Dashboard for Tesla - the better app for your Tesla

    If we're making requests for Smart Charging features, I have one. It would be great if we could incorporate pre-conditioning (pre-heating or pre-cooling) into our Smart Charging. Currently I am using Dashboard For Tesla to set the time I want the battery charged, and I'm using Visible Tesla to...

    New Showroom Model S P90D

    If performance is important to you, you should find out which version of the battery that P90D has. You can read about the differences here. Basically it was only the most recent version of the 90 pack that is able to meet the original specs of the car. Good luck!

    Configuration Feedback

    Also, depending on where you will be driving, parking, etc., you may want to consider 19" wheels instead of the 21s. The 21s, being so low profile, are very susceptible to curb rash, and they also wear faster. Plan on spending a lot more on tires over the years if you go with 21s.
  39. Andyw2100

    Configuration Feedback

    I have the air suspension, and love it. It is really useful to be able to geo-fence areas where you want the suspension higher, like steep driveways, etc. Also you may want to rethink the all glass roof. There have been many posts here from people who have it who are having issues with wind...

    Tune In station icons

    The Tune In icons have been flaky on my Model S for a few months now. Some seem to come and go. This was never an issue in the past. I think the problem must have been introduced with some firmware version pushed in the last two or three months.

    Minor quarter panel dent.. what's your opinion?

    A good detail shop may be able to completely get rid of the scratches or at least make them a lot less noticeable.

    Waterloo, NY Supercharger Updates

    It was not open this past Saturday, and it did not look like any work was currently taking place. So my guess would be no, it's not open yet.

    Firmware 8.0

    When TACC was first introduced, it did not adjust speed for curves. I actually prefer this. If I'm driving, and simply using TACC for speed control, let me drive. I'll brake or lower the TACC speed if that's what I want to do. I do understand the need to lower the set speed for curves if...

    Need info

    A simple google search turns this up: TXDMV.GOV - Temporary Permits "Permit Display The permit must be displayed in the rear window of the vehicle. If the vehicle does not have a rear window, the operator must carry the permit and receipt in the vehicle any time the vehicle is in-transit."

    Has anyone actually paid idle fees?

    Perhaps, but that wasn't at all clear from the language LuckyX used. This is exactly what LuckyX wrote: "Just got my X back from warranty work and didn't incur any idling fees. I even asked and they didn't have a clue." By using the word "incur" instead of saying something like "have to pay"...

    Does the car feel slower when the charge is low?

    I think it was pretty obvious that what I was saying was that I could feel the large difference that the numbers on the chart represented. The original question was not clearly framed. And more importantly, I was responding to the following comment: "- change in max power is in all cases less...

    Does the car feel slower when the charge is low?

    Well, at least now we are having a discussion instead of just lobbing "disagrees." I did not create the chart, as I pointed out in the post. I was simply reposting the chart. Also the fact that the chart does not show the blank space that you showed in your chart does not make it BS. The...

    Does the car feel slower when the charge is low?

    I love it when people like @WarpedOne disagree with informative posts. (Above.) No actual argument, of course. Just a cowardly click of a "disagree" button, that makes absolutely no sense.
